Preschool - 8th Grade
A child's formative years have the ability to begin shaping who they are and will be for the rest of their lives. We are dedicated to helping each child develop spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually and socially. Along with a solid foundation in Christ, these are the tools children need to become lifelong learners.
Learning is promoted through modern teaching methods, using technology, hands-on experiences and field trips. As one of the largest Lutheran schools in the country, we are able to provide students with programs in music, art, physical education, learning resource, motor lab and many extracurricular activities, along with core academics. We are also able to offer an extensive athletics program and extended before and after school care for full day students.
Showing love for the Lord through generosity and serving others is instilled early. The many servant events held throughout the school year, the variety of mission emphases chosen for chapel offerings and the collection of items for those in need are just a few ways that HCLS students work toward growing their servant hearts.
JOY! is the 2017-18 school year theme.
Jesus Others Yourself
In Mark 12: 30/31, Jesus is asked what the greatest commandment is. He replied, “love the Lord your God with all of your heart, and with all your sound with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself.”
The JOY that comes every day is knowing how we love God, we love our neighbors and then ourselves. This is a life long lesson that we will use as our theme for the following school year.
My prayer is that this theme is and becomes a “core” of who each of us are!
- Mr. Albert Amling, Principal

2016 DPI School Report Card
The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) creates School Report Cards and District Report Cards for publicly funded schools and districts in the state. Starting with the 2015-16 school year, report cards for private schools participating in the choice program are required. These report cards are based only on data for choice students in the school and can be accessed online.
The Choice Student-School Report Card has some key differences compared to public School Report Cards this year because all choice schools participated in a new data collection system for the first time in the 2015-16 school year. As a result, DPI only has a single year of data for choice students and the report cards require multiple years of data to produce a score. Given these data limitations, the Choice Pupil Report Cards for 2015-16 do not report:
- Any scores or ratings because calculations require at least two years of data. All choice schools will be “Not Rated” for their first year of report cards.
- Attendance or absenteeism rates because those rates lag by one year and DPI does not have student-level attendance data from the 2014-15 school year from choice schools.
- Graduation rates because these rates require four years of data to calculate.
The legislative requirements to produce these report cards allow choice schools to opt-in to receive a report card for all students attending the private school. We have chosen to not opt into the Private School Report Card at this time and will continue to evaluate in the future. As required by our participation in MCPC and WCPC, here is the link to the one page School Report Card for Hales Corners Lutheran School and a list of educational options.
